The International Medieval Bibliography is today recognised as the leading bibliography of the European Middle Ages (c. 450-1500). It was established in the mid-1960s by IMI with the support of the Medieval Academy of America to provide a current bibliography of articles from periodicals and miscellany volumes (conference proceedings, Festschriften or collections of essays). It has been published since 1968 and in the intervening period has catalogued and classified over 300,000 medieval records. An electronic version has been available since 1995. The records are drawn from the regular coverage of over 4000 periodicals and 5000 miscellany volumes over this thirty-year period. Not only does the IMB provide full bibliographical information to the records from the publications, but it provides a comprehensive cataloguing and indexing system to assist the user in identifying all relevant records. A unique network of over 50 specialist contributors and teams throughout the world ensures regular coverage of articles in journals and miscellanies from the Americas, Europe and the Pacific.
